Inktober 2018 Part 2

There’s something really exciting about working with only black ink. It gives you a lot of freedom in some areas, but restricts you in other areas. I know I work with watercolours most of the time, but I would really love to introduce a bit more ink to my work.
My favorite out of all these images is the Dragon. While I painted it I was listening to Robin Hobbs “Assassins Quest” and of course there are dragons in that story. Less than a month later I’m now on the final book of the second trilogy. Her books are so addictive, I really recommend the read.

Day 11 Cruel

Inktober 2018 Part 1

Inktober is an art challenge that takes place during October with ink as the main medium. There is a list of daily prompts which helps you decide what to draw each day. I had a lot of fun with Inktober this year and will be using a lot of the designs for society 6 and redbubble. I may even sell a few original Ink works on etsy. I had a few stressful moments as I took part Inktober and 365 Days of Paint at the same time, doubling the amount of work I was used to doing. I went home to Ireland for a week during October  and couldn’t paint every day because I was catching up with family and friends. So they weren’t all done daily, most of them were done days after the deadline.

The name of the prompts are under each painting. I will be posting the rest in a few days time.

Day 1 Poison
Day 2 Zen
Day 3 Roasted
Day 4 Spell
Day 5 Chicken
Day 6 Drooling
Day 7 Exhausted
Day 8 Star
Day 9 Precious
Day 10 Flowing

365 Days of Paint: 281-290

As usual I am very bad at posting regularly on this website. I visited home and had inktober, so I was doing two paintings a day. When I needed a day to myself without art it doubled the amount of work I needed to get done. I got it all done eventually, once I came back from Ireland, but I still feel bad for not having it done on the day. The challenge is finally going to be completed soon. I am actually really excited to finish it. I’ve learned so much this year. I am a lot more confident in my painting and in selling my work. I will be posting more stuff on etsy soon. I don’t think I’ll do the Christmas cards this year. I will sell commissions instead. Something that has been triggering my art block lately is trying to do too many different things out of my comfort zone with my art. Once I get used to regularly selling my artwork I will start the next thing, like taking baby steps.
